William Knapp.  Have a look at this online marriage record.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K8NC-PBM
and note the name Knapp.
Nicholas and Emily are buried Arlington Cemetery, Emily lived to 102.

I believe Nicholas was born in Uruguay, probably where his father was stationed, also in USN.  His father also buried at Arlington.

William Knapp's query sent me delving into descendants of Gen Charles Greham Halpine, 5th child and 3rd son of Rev Nicholas John Halpin and his wife Ann Greham.  All or most of his family remained in the USA, originally in Manhattan.  An extraordinary number of the sons and grandsons became US army or naval officers, and many are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.  There would be living descendants, at least one still named Halpine.  I attach a tree chart.

Years ago we recorded in these pages that a daughter of Old Nick Halpin, school proprietor in Portarlington, by name of Mary Anne Halpin married in 1789 Thomas HILL, son of Thomas Hill.  Father and/or son were at varying times described as master builder or architect.  They had 3 reported children (no substantive records) presumably born after 1789
Nicholas Thomas Hill
William Halpin Hill
Mary Anne Hill (confused with her mother?).
It is also suggested that some or all of them went to Waterford (town or county I don't know).

For the record, I have extracted these entries from Alumni Dublinenses because of the mention of Queen's Co or Waterford.  There are many more Hill entries for Dublin that I have not extracted.  A William Hill and a George Hill were parties to the above couple's deed of marriage settlement.

Hill, Edward, Pen (P.T.) Jan 17 1834, aged 19; s of William, Clericus; b Waterford  BA Vern 1838
Hill, James, Pen (Mr Halpin) Dec 7 1801 aged 19; son of Thomas, Architectus; b Queen’s Co.  BA Vern 1806.  MA Nov 1832

I wonder if either of these may be cousins of the Nicholas John or William Henry Halpin families.
